Coaching involves helping clients increase their potential. It is focused
on business, not personal, issues, but it can have an impact on all parts
of the person.
- · Improving skills
- · Improving performance
- · Developing for new challenges
- · Meeting specific agendas
Coaching goals must be clear and specific, although they may change as
the work situation changes, or to meet specific work challenges (e.g.,
an important presentation). I have helped clients set and achieve goals
in their worklife, and to strategize alternative solutions which sometimes
involves further data gathering.
In order to be most effective, the client must have:
- · Commitment – be willing to risk change
- · Assessment – be open and honest in determining the situation
- · Action – be available to spending time and effort in new
- · Ongoing upgrading – monitoring change and making continual
My approach to developmental coaching, at the end of the day, is based
on clear goals, risking and tolerating change. I am not a “guru”
or a magician, but I have facilitated change which resulted in a new public
company, new Managing Directors, turned professional into partners, and
new dreams to move forward.
